Варианты вступительного экзамена по английскому языку

1. Прочитайте текст, ответьте на вопросы. К двум подчеркнутым предложениям поставьте пять вопросов.

Is an "only child" special in some way? If children have no brothers and sisters, do they grow up and develop differently? Are they likely to be more intelligent, or less confident, or more egoistic? Or are they just the same as children from large families? Statistics often show that only children are "achievers" - people who become very successful in their careers. But firstborn children in general (not just only children) tend to be "achievers".

In the 1920s and 1930s the child experts used to say, "Being an only child is an illness in itself”. In fact, of course it's impossible to support this. Only children naturally have a very different experience in childhood. They are always the centre of attention. No younger brother or sister arrives to challenge this, and to share their childhood with them.

One modem-day child expert believes they may be more dependent. They may be less willing to share things. They may have more difficulty getting used to school. But the phrase "an only child" does not necessarily mean "a lonely child". A professor of Child Care at Sheffield Hospital says: "There is one great advantage for an only child. He or she receives all the love parents have to offer. A loved child usually grows up into a loving adult". So the general opinion of the experts now is: Only children are not very different from "non-onlies" in either emotions or intelligence.

2. What is bad about being an only child?
